Think About It
- ‘Let he who is without sin cast the first stone…’ (Jn 8:7) Intentional patience with the wrong doing of others through the lens of our own human frailty and capacity to sin, can be a helpful strategy to employ in our day to day relationships. Recall a time when you have patiently borne the wrongdoing of a family member, work colleague or fellow parishioner. Recall a time someone has extended you the same generosity of spirit.
- Trust in God is easy when life is flowing along peacefully. Trusting in God when you are hurting at the expense of another’s words and actions can be more challenging. Does your faith console and comfort you in these times? If so, how? If not, why?
- The closer our relationship with God/Jesus the more we are protected from the pain and turmoil felt in the ‘stormy seas’ of life. What can you do this year to enhance your prayer life and deepen your trust in a loving, merciful God.
